Rated 5 out of 5 by from This bar is Amazing and a Miracle! Biore you can never stop making this bar. I bought it about 2 months ago when I wouldn't stop breaking out. I go to a Dermatologist and they gave me products to use but I am not sure why but I couldn't stop breaking out. I decided to try this after reading some great reviews in other sites. Oh boy I am glad I did. I tell everyone about this bar and bought them for 12 yr old my son and 15 yr old nephew. This cleared up my skin with just a few weeks. After a few days I saw a big difference. It feels so refreshing when you use in the mornings and at night. I say buy it and you will be so pleased you did.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Only product that helped my skin! I purchased this bar about 2 months ago and I could not be happier! I have struggled with acne since I was about 14 and now being 20 it's getting very frustrating! I've used hundreds of face washes over my years and have never found anything like this bar. Face washes with chemicals were way too harsh on my skin, so I switched to using natural products awhile back. Biore's charcoal cleanser seemed to be helping control the problem for awhile, but after trying this I won't use anything else. I haven't had a breakout since I started using it. Thank you Biore and please never discontinue this!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing daily exfoliator I apply the bar directly to my face in circular motions. This soap feels like there's an exfoliating loofah built inside. It exfoliates very well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thorough Cleaning I just bought this product 4 days ago and so far it works. My face feels literally squeaky clean. I am hoping that it is doing a deep cleaning. I have large pores near and on my nose and I like the clean look and feel after using the soap. I'll see how it goes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Game changer I'm in my mid twenties and have never had much of an issue with acne--until this year. I've been breaking out for months and while I found products that helped, nothing really cleared my skin. I've been using this bar for just over a week and the difference is amazing. My skin has cleared up significantly, and feels super soft! I enjoy using this bar, too. It lathers really thick and feels good going on. The peppermint takes some getting used to, but I really like the cool feeling! Wakes me up in the morning, too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Groovy I need this in a body bar. Acne exists in more places than the face, and this bar soap is works so well that I'd like to use it on the rest of my parts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING I've been using this bar for a few weeks now and not only has it helped me cut excess oil, but it has helped clear stubborn black heads as well as even my skin tone! I always say that I have "sassy" skin, because it never seems to like anything I try to do for it, but this affordable little bar has really helped me!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Post workout clean Looked for a daily cleanser for post workout clean and happened to see this and thought what the heck. Remember holding kitten or baby duck against your cheek feels..thats what this feels like. Doesn't feel like sand blaster. Face is so clean and not feeling dried up or left over residue soapy feel. Love the smell too so fresh and so clean clean.
